1. What is lot abatement?

Lot abatement is the City of Richmond and other localities’ process for dealing with neglected properties that violate local lawn ordinances. In the context of yards, it addresses overgrown lawns, excessive weeds, and debris.

3. What happens if I don't clean up my yard?

If you fail to address the violations within the allotted time frame, the city can send crews to clean your yard for you. The cost, including labor and disposal fees, will be on top of your real estate taxes amongst other possible fees.

YME Landscapes offers yard clean up services for lot abatement situations at rates that are more affordable than city taxes and fees in the long-run.

5. Are there any ways to avoid Property Maintenance Code Enforcement altogether?

The best way to avoid needing lot abatement is to maintain your yard regularly by mowing, trimming weeds, and removing debris.

If you can’t get to it yourself, hiring YME Landscapes for landscaping maintenance is the best way to be sure your property is routinely taken care of.

2. How do I know if my yard is in violation?

The City of Richmond code enforcement office might leave a door hanger or mail you a notice detailing the specific violations and providing a deadline for cleanup. The most common violation in Richmond, VA is when your grass is 12 inches or taller.

4. What are the costs associated with lot abatement?

The city will charge you for the cleanup crew’s time, equipment used, and disposal of any removed debris. These costs can accumulate quickly.

6. What is the best way to dispose of yard waste?

Most cities offer yard waste collection services. But if you’re unable to utilize those services, YME Landscapes can properly dispose of any yard waste to help you avoid any hassle or environmental damage.
